KUALA LUMPUR, June 14 — Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur started its mass Covid-19 vaccination facilitation today in line with its support for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) spearheaded by the government, by providing its venue as a vaccination centre or Pusat Pemberian Vaksin (PPV).
Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur CEO Hoo Ling Lee said that the hospital supports this initiative by the government as it is a crucial element in stopping the spread of Covid-19.
“We are indeed honoured to receive this responsibility from the Ministry of Health (MOH) in this National Covid-19Immunisation Programme, and aim to support them in any way we can to serve the public to overcome the pandemic and break the Covid-19 chain from spreading,” she said.
The vaccination centre will operate from Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm daily, and all appointments are based on the MySejahtera application only.
“I am optimistic that with more people getting vaccinated, we will be able to flatten the curve and our community would be safer. To echo the government and the MOH, I am also hopeful that more Malaysians will consider getting vaccinated as clinical data suggest that the benefits outweigh the risks,” she said.
